Windows 7: What are the bad driver list registry entries?

What are the bad driver list registry entries?

I have been getting the occasional BSOD and while trying to figure it out I ran across two entries named...

sw3dbaddriverlist1
sw3dbaddriverlist2

...both associated with Adobe's Shockwave 11\uicontrol.

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2075883442-2509250786-3927937982-1001\Software\AppDataLow\Software\Adobe\Shockwave 11\uicontrol\sw3dbaddriverlist1

I've tried googling for what they are but I guess I need to refresh my google skills because I can't find anything that explains them. In fact, when I enter "bad driver list" in the search box for the Windows Seven forum it doesn't find anything specific but rather just lists about a gigatrillion entries that have the keyword "driver" in them.

Does anyone know what these are and why they are in my registry?

Thanks in advance,

Go to post 15 and there will be the resolution hopefully

Thanks. I was there once before but apparently didn't scroll down far enough.

I'll step through it and report back the results here.

I stepped through that and it looks like it cleaned up a lot of Flash and Shockwave entries and that may have fixed the BSOD but the registry entries that I was asking about are still there.

Do you know what puts them in there and why?

I wouldn't be able to tell you why they are still there but .....
Most of the time they would of been created after a install

I would just leave them if they are not hindering you anymore changing anything like that would be delicate

You can also try and see when they were created to give you a idea if you should remove it or not if it was created the day you fixed the problem leave it alone
